The laser utilises an innovative mixed laser technology offering exceptional results for skin resurfacing, skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and scar removal, it emits BOTH fractional CO2 ablative and 1540nm non-ablative laser wavelengths combining to create the best results with little to no downtime.
The two wavelengths 10,600nm Co2 and 1540nm can be emitted sequentially or simultaneously or individually, maximising the benefits of both these gold standard technologies in laser resurfacing. Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre clinicians can determine the number of treatments required for best results, although there is no limit to tailoring the treatment or to the extent of resurfacing available.
There is no comparison to other fractional technologies as the unique combination of laser wavelengths offers a far greater effect than any other laser on the market today. This combination offers the best results by simultaneously resurfacing the skin and inducing dermal changes with no downtime (depending on requirement and treatment settings.
